Maybe they should read the CIA World Factbook
I have been looking at monetizing some of the niche websites I have planned.
These comments are based on the Findwhat.com terms and conditions.
Some of the countries/regions that do not qualify as clicks are really strange.
Not allowed: Gibraltar, Guernsey
Seems that Jersey, Isle of Mann and the Falkland Islands are ok though.
Not allowed: Norway, Denmark, Sweden
But for some reason Finland is acceptable
Not allowed: Belgium, The Netherlands, Italy
But France, Spain, Germany, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Austria, Malta, Monaco, Corsica, all ok
Yes I know Corsica is part of France, but remember Gibraltar & Guernsey were not allowed.
Now of course most of South America is allowed, but not Mexico or Ecuador.
I can't believe the fraudulent number of clicks from these territories are any worse than other territories.
I would hazard a guess that certainly among internet users, there is a higher understanding of the English language, and income per capita in many of these countries than you would find in many states of America.
Who makes these decisions?
I can't see any correlation between region, language or Gross National Capita.
Edit: Support for Germany, France and Spain are probably because of the merger with Espotting who supported those 3 counties. It is strange that they don't support Italy however, considering Espotting have a service there.
